Nowhere does it say that your right to free speech may not be infringed, but the second amendment does make that as clear as possible.
    one could also argue that the right to keep & bear arms not being infringed is also conditional upon the existence of a well-regulated militia.

    Look, it is fine to have an intelligent debate on gun ownership. But seriously, after looking at all of your previous post you are closer on the side of the Brady Bunch than folks in this forum. You have been respectful and upfront. But the arguments you are using come right out of the Brad Bunch handbook.

    You're using the wrong definition of "regulated."

    Microstamping, or ballistic imprinting, is a patented process that uses laser technology to engrave a tiny marking of the make,
    model and serial number on the tip of a gun’s firing pin to allow an imprint of that information on spent cartridge cases.
    Supporters of the technology say it will be a “game changer,” allowing authorities to quickly identify the registered guns
    used in crimes. Opponents claim the process is costly, unreliable and may ultimately impact the local economies that heavily
    depend on the gun industry, including Ilion, N.Y., where Remington Arms maintains a factory, and Hartford, Conn., where Colt’s
    manufacturing is headquartered.
    “Mandatory microstamping would have an immediate impact of a loss of 50 jobs,” New York State Sen. James Seward,
    a Republican whose district includes Ilion, said, adding that Remington employs 1,100 workers in the town.
    “You’re talking about a company that has options in other states. Why should they be in a state that’s hostile to legal gun manufacturing?
    There could be serious negative economic impact with the passage of microstamping and other gun-control laws.”

    One could argue most anything, I guess.

    None of the above, absolutely NONE.

    Just checked the "View Results" and I'm disgusted that anyone on this forum would check any box on that poll.

    In the interest of fairness, I added another option to the poll.

    You might get more responses this way.

    I support restrictions on automatic weapons, artillery, mortars, explosive rounds, grenades, missiles, etc. I support instant background checks, although they aren't all that effective against first time offenders like Tucson or Aurora. I support that felons, violent offenders, and people using guns in the commision of a crime should not be allowed to have them...

    I think it is foolish to think that there should be NO regulation on firearms.

    That is pretty interesting technology. It seems like it would be beneficial to the good guys more than the bad, so it would get my support for that. It affecting jobs and reliability would be another issue. Many forms of technology make others obsolete, thus affecting jobs. I'm never against technology for preservation of jobs, otherwise we'd still be in the stone age.....

    just a Constitutional-literalist would argue that ALL gun regulations are illegal, ALL regulations upon political speech & political assembly are illegal......meaning that a group can protest whenever they like, wherever they like, however they like, for as long as they like.
    Technically speaking, a Constitutional literalist would be right. What part of "infringed" do you not understand?


    but of course, society would drive to a hault if we allowed such things. That's why we have protest permits. And that same logic applies to gun regulations.
    Baloney.

    Same tired argument was used when concealded handgun permits became the norm. The socialist/liberal/generally confused types insisted that society as we knew it would cease to exist and blood would run in the streets.
    This country faired quite well without regulations of guns and speech in its infancy.
    A protest "permit" is BS. Its just another infringement of freedom of speech. If you dont get the permit issued, then you cant protest? Its just another tool used by weak men that want to control.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Protest permits and CHL's are also a form of taxation in that the .gov gets more of your money to 'allow' you the exercise of God-given rights.

    As always, follow the money...

    So, when the bad guy swings by a local firing range and picks up some of YOUR brass to drop at a crime scene?

    That totally ignores how easily the microstamping can be erased by brushing it with a diamond knife sharpener. And how about plain old dirt on the micro engraving? How about all the firearms and parts around that already exist? Plan to outlaw anything that does not have a unique firing pin with the microengraving on it?

    My very first gun repair, performed when I was about 15, was to manufacture a new firing pin for my .22LR. Plan to outlaw files and scrap metal?

    No, microstamping is only a "reasonable restriction" that does nothing, but offer a stepping stone to further restrictions, that do nothing for the perceived problems, except the perceived problem that firearms are not illegal.
